Last week, we profiled the family behind American gymnast, Jake Dalton. He is now finished with his Olympic competition. 

On Insight Monday, he talked about the U.S. collapse in the team gymnastic competition. He saw promising signs from his teammates in the individual competiton, "We're young, you know.  This is gonna be a good experience for us and you can't get success without failure sometimes, you know?  So, this will keep the fire on our feet and keep the drive going for the next four years."  

Dalton is from Sparks, Nevada where his parents own the gym in which he learned the sport.  He is currently attending the University of Oklahoma, where he is N-C-A-A All-Around Champion and the U.S. Vault and Floor Exercise champion.
